Some memorable weddings and events

In November 1993, I played at a private reception for Diana, Princess of Wales as part of a fundraising event for the charity Birthright. Other attendees included David Hasselhoff and Cilla Black

The Landmark Hotel, London

In the autumn of 2003, I was booked by Sir Winston Churchill’s daughter, Lady Mary Soames, to play for a Churchill family dinner in London. She sent me a list of what she remembered as being her father’s favourite songs and asked me to play them during the evening.

The Savoy, London

One of the most memorable events I ever remember playing at was for Queen Noor of Jordan’s 60th Birthday Party in August 2011. The Queen was the last wife of the late King Hussein and was a delight to play for.

I met Sir Frank Williams on many occasions and was pleased to be asked to play for his 70th Birthday Lunch when he was joined by the members of his family in April, 2012

I was lucky enough to be aked to be the main entertainment at the British leg of George and Amal Clooney’s wedding in October, 2014. The evening party was a huge event but, in so many ways, was a wedding like any other – lots of laughter and a good bit of singing!

I have known champion jockey Sir A.P.McCoy for quite a number of years and was invited to be the entertainment for both his retirement from racing party in 2015 as well as his subsequent Knighthood party later the same year.

Without a doubt, the richest man I’ve ever been booked to play for! I, as well as an eighteen piece dance orchestra, played for Elon Musk’s 44th birthday party in October, 2016. Quite an event with no expense spared!

Probably the ‘scariest’ job I’ve ever done! I played two live segments on BBC1 South’s contribution to ‘Children In Need’ in November, 2016. A great experience nonetheless, and a lot of money raised!

The incredible Olympic Gold Medalist gymnast Sir Max Whitlock tied the knot to Leah in July, 2017. I played throughout the entirety of their wedding and a lovelier couple you couldn’t wish to meet. There were some kind words about me in OK Magazine which covered the wedding.

Botley’s Mansion, Chertsey, Surrey

Legendary golfer Colin Montgomerie got married to Sarah in January, 2023. At the very last minute, he asked me if I could play The Proclaimers’ ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’ to leave the ceremony to…..done, and it worked just fine!
